What a scam they are running at this place. They are money hungry con artists. I was told I needed a deep cleaning scaling procedure. Dr. Tau told me that with my insurance I would have to pay about $560 out of pocket for the entire procedure. I went today to have the first half done. After the procedure I was told that the out of pocket cost for one half of my mouth was over $700, but that they had given me discounts so all I had to pay for the one side was $560, double the price I was quoted a week ago. I was then told that they had had a very hard time getting in contact with MetLife, but conveniently they were finally able to get in touch with them while I was there having the procedure done. They said it was at that point that they discovered that my insurance wouldn't cover as much as they thought. They should have had all of that figured out prior to doing anything, and I was under the impression that they did. I was never told they were having any trouble with the insurance. My husband and I have both had other more extensive procedures done with the same insurance and we've never had to pay anything close to that out of pocket. I've never even had to pay a copay at other dentists. When I complained and said that I wasn't paying that much the receptionist just started pulling random numbers out of the air asking me if I could pay $500 and then "how about $300?" I was supposed to go back tomorrow to have the other half done, but there's no way I'm going back there. When I said I wasn't coming back the receptionist responded "I figured that, I already took you out of the system." Now I have one half of my mouth done, and don't know what to do about the other half. What a joke this place is. Stay away unless you enjoy throwing money away. more »

Everyone always compliment me on my smile now of days thanks to DR.Tau and his awesome staff because before visiting them I never ever smiled showing all my teeth. I had my Invisalign done here and people stop me everyday to tell me my smile is great more »

Awesome first time experience. Dr. Tau was very thorough, and talked on my level to explain the work that needed to be done. Having had negative experiences in the past has kept me from getting work done, but I'm completely confident that my experience with Dr. Tau will exceed my expectations. Thanks! more »

I needed some dental work done recently and found Dr Tau through a google search. I was greeted warmly and given a very detailed form to fill out. We did an X-ray and he showed me a few problems I had. We quickly scheduled my next appointment for a filling. I felt very comfortable and at home at this office - that is saying much because no one likes the dentist. I was not offered the paraffin wax, blankets etc that were mentioned in the intake form. I'm not sure why because I didn't ask either also, the prices were a little steep. I am looking for a new, permanent dentist close to home.Dr Tau seems like a good fit but I will wait to make that decision after a few more visits. more »

I could not be more satisfied with Dr. Tau and his team. They are focussed on quickly finding their patients solutions. This is my 1st week wearing Invisalign and I couldn't be happier with them. I've read a lot of reviews online regarding Invisalign about the importance of finding a quality dentist/orthodontist for your treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Tau if you're in the Philly area. If you aren't local, he is well-connected and could find you the best dentist to do your treatment.
Nothing's better than having trusted care.

Thanks Dr. Tau!

Finally a personable and friendly staff! Very welcoming upon entering. Dr Tau took the time to spend with me and go over my treatment plan and explain the procees, and thoroughly discussed payment options-letting me make the decision on my treatment instead of pushing me into any option. The staff was warm and welcoming/friendly as well. So happy I found this office and a positive dental experience! more »

I came to the Pennsylvania Center for Dental Excellence with a groupon for Zoom whitening. I have had the procedure done before so I knew what to expect. The doctor came in to give me the OK and was pretty rude and seemed rushed. Immediately after, I was pressured into buying custom trays with a bleach kit, so as to suggest if I didn't spend additional money, I may not be happy with my results. The technician was friendly, but she didn't come to check on me at all besides after the beeping from the machine indicated that each 15 minute session was complete, and several times the actual machine was applied to my mouth improperly and slipped out of place, likely causing me to not have optimal results. Unfortunately, no one was around to assist me with this issue, although there didn't seem to be any other patients in the office. I basically have nothing positive to say other than the groupon was a gift so it cost me nothing and my teeth seem to be a little bit whiter. I will not be back - I'm sure it's not tough to find a dental office in the Philadelphia area better than this one. more »
